What are the 4 questions to answer as a nurse considers unionization
1. Are there relevant gains to be made for the nursing profession and for improved patient care through collective bargaining-or is this a myth?
-2. Should nurses, who frequently are called on to supervise the work of others, be classified for collective bargaining purposes as management or labor?
-3. Will nurses be too reluctant to strike? This is one of the most powerful tolls that a union has at its disposal. There is concern that strikes by nurses could negatively affect patient care and destroy the public's image of nursing. More importantly, the strike is contrary to nursing ethics and licensure to do no harm and avoid patient abandonment.
